@Lakotaubp thanks for the suggestion. whats an appropriate alternative way to enag if I'm interested is support development like ports to other devices and decelopmentvelopment.

RE: How to install to A/B slot devices?
I don't have info, but this is the case on other devices like the Pixel XL. it's mentioned on a github issue here:
It seems like they figured a work around?
The notes say:
This is an A/B device, so dual boot is possible: I'm currently running Android P in slot A along with Halium being installed in slot B.
TODO: Add dual-boot installation instructions
A/B partition scheme means there's no recovery partition anymore. Instead, it's located in initrams of the kernel. At normal boot, bootloader puts skip_initramfs flag into cmdline and Android obeys that. Halium needs initramfs, as some scripts are run there, so there's a dirty hack in the kernel to ignore skip_initrams. Thus, installing TWRP will break Halium and prevent it from booting.
TODO: Research the way Android boots and replicate that behaviour in Halium
I think the answer might be:
Halium needs initramfs, as some scripts are run there, so there's a dirty hack in the kernel to ignore skip_initrams.
RE: Hello! Given that Verizon hates me.... Port to Google Pixel?
How important is the HDMI over USB-C thing? Is it still the case?
What devices that haven't gotten attention have that?
Best way to support app development? (other than writing code)
Other than actually writing code, what would ya'll say the best way to support the Ubuntu Touch app ecosystem currently is?
RE: Nexus 5X Development
Is anyone still considering working on this?
I haven't done any serious development but would love to see Ubuntu Touch development continue with newer devices and the 5x seems to be an affordable well spec'ed option - though it does have a history of hardware failures
